Art has been a constant interest in my life. As a child, I loved to draw and paint and that love has never left me. Art makes one more observant of the visual world and provides endless enjoyment of the beauty to be found all around us. I am particularly drawn to architectural and scenic subjects. Growing up in San Francisco I was inspired by Victorian houses and painted them often, I graduated from Lowell High School, Barnard College, and the University of California School of Library Science. I worked full-time at the San Rafael Library as a reference librarian from 1980 to 1995. After retiring, I played tennis, played in the orchestra at the College of Marin (second violin), and began playing duplicate bridge. But have always found time for painting. Watercolor is my favorite medium. I studied art at the College of Marin, and am now part of the group, the Magnolias with Cara Brown. I am one of the original members of the Marin County Watercolor Society (since 1971).
